"My favorite part is when magicians' faces go from I-know-that-trick to I-HATE-YOU."

I've been waiting YEARS for this. Oh boy do I love it... I can't wait for you to see it. The beginner's "jumping rubber band" is my #1 FAVORITE trick to teach new magicians, and this trick gives me a PRO version to fool the crap out of them after they learn it and think they're hot stuff. Is that a little too kung-fu-master of me? Yes.

My eyes popped out of my head when I saw this trick. It's what you've seen before.. ON STEROIDs.

A rubber band is wrapped around your 2 fingers. And in a flash, with no finger movement, it jumps to your other 2 fingers... then back AGAIN... AND AGAIN?!?!?!? YES. This is where magicians (even experienced ones) start to cry.

PROFESSIONALS: The basic beginner jumping rubber band is in every single beginner magic book in existence. You will LOVE the looks on peoples' faces when they go from "I've seen this before.." to "HOOOOOOOLY CRAP"

My fingers are raw from practising this but it's so worth it!
This is not too difficult to learn but it will take practise to get it down perfectly. Once you've got it you'll have an easy to follow, super visual effect that looks like a glitch in the matrix :)

Revolution of Jumping Rubber Band Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2017
This is by far the most visual and cleanest version of jumping rubber band effect, no doubt.

BJ1 or BJ2 is pretty practical to perform in real world, even surrounded (of course you need to know your angle). I've performed to normal people as well as magicians, it all worked well. BJ3 is for advanced learner. I seldom do a direct BJ3. I did BJ1, then BJ2, then you can continue with TOUCH as it jumps to the audience hand as a finale.

If you have chance to see Hanson do it live or in other magicians' videos, you'll realize it's still doable for live audience and it looks great. But it really needs practice.

BJ4 needs a bit preparation and more for video shooting. But it gives you the idea of the mechanics of rubber band magic. In real world performance, just like what Hanson did in the trailer, BJ3 with a reverse jump will make a 4 times jumping effect.

CraziEST thing you will ever do with a RubberBand! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2017
If you don't like to practice magic don't buy this!
Work needed, but totally worth it.... this is simply the Craziest thing you will ever do with a RubberBand!

I don't understand people who say the instructions aren't clear enough, it IS crystal CLEAR. People who give it only 10 min practice, fail to do it and criticize the teaching, just quit magic. Magic is an art that need dedications, really practice it some hours before judging it.

AWESOME Trick and Great Teacher Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2017
When I saw the demo, it fooled me badly. I love rubber band magic and immediately plunked down the funds for this. It was well worth it.

A lot of movements to follow but with patience you will be able to master the routine. The fun part is that it takes a bit of practice to make it look as smooth as the videos. At first I thought there were cuts made in the video to make it look right, but repeated views shows the minor details.

All in all, BJ4 is great material, very nice, visual, smooth, rubber band trick you can perform anywhere, anytime. Recommended for rubber band enthusiasts.

Incomplete Instruction Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2017
Wonderful effect but the instruction is incomplete. The video attempted to have a novice learn the effect alongside the instructor. This was not shot well and the student did not demonstrate mastery of the effect at all.

Only through ample dexterity and years of rubber band magic have I gotten the effect to work off and on. The key points to make the effect work were left out in the instruction. Plus, it requires the better bands provided by Joe Rindfleisch to work.

Not as advertised Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 22nd, 2017
What you see in the trailer is not what you get. I really like Hanson and he has a lot to offer but in my opinion this trick wasn't one of them. Even during the training, the rubber band did not come all the way around most of the time and ended up in front of his knuckles. The three position change is barely doable. The four position change is completely ridiculous and is not what is shown in the trailer.

BJ4 by Hanson Chien Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2017
There are 4 levels to this. Even if I only perform level 1, it is worth it. Having the band jump and then jump back without any noticeable set up is a fooler.

Anyone who has dabbled in magic most likely will have run across the beginner's version of this. They know there's an obvious set up for each jump, so this will really throw them.

I'm working on level two. I'm having trouble consistently getting the band to jump from the first two fingers to the last to without getting hung up on the first finger knuckle, but I feel I'll get it as I work on it more.

Eye-popping Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2017
I've worked with this off and on for a couple days, and I've read the other reviews. I think maybe people equate Rubber Bands with 'easy'. This is not 'easy'... but it IS doable. I can hit BJ2 about 90% of the time. The setup for BJ3 is knacky, but what about sleight of hand isn't? I'd say you need some of Joe Rindfleisch's bands, but if you're doing rubber band work, you should have them anyway. This will take some practicing to get it to work, but the payback is startling since everyone knows how to do the one jump, and now you can do 2 or 3, or 4 if you're industrious!

Takes a classic to a whole new level Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2017
Really good, Hanson Chien has put a lot of work into this and clearly refined it through a lot of performance. It takes the classic version and adds numerous touches that make it a lot better. Hanson has then added new phases that take it to a whole new level. It's all just as good as it looks in the trailer.

A revolution of Jumping Rubber Band! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2017
Hanson sure has a piece of great rubber band magic here!

Totally impromptu. No gimmicks needed. It is not a trick where you'll be able to perform it right away but the practice will be worth it. I watched it twice and then I was doing this routine the next day.

The first time I tried this I said to myself "THIS is AWESOME!" I will probably use it the rest of my life. That is why I gave it 5 stars
